Dr. Donelan was the best OBGYN doctor I have ever been to, and I've been to a lot given cross country moves. She was incredibly helpful, understanding, personable and comforting, especially when I was in pain. I trust her judgement and appreciate the time she spent with me answering questions and giving advice.

Dr. Emily Donelan was incredible!! I had to switch gynecologist's at Northwestern and this was my first visit with a new doctor and she was awesome! She spent so much thorough time explaining the questions I had in an easy to understand way and genuinely cared about my concerns. She also was extremely responsive when following-up with my questions I emailed to her via MyChart after the appointment. I would definitely recommend her to others and will be coming back to her for my next appointment!
